Hope

As we reflect on the past few days, and in fact, years and centuries of injustice towards people of color, we are heartbroken and outraged. We are reminded that theaters are a sacred place where stories are told that help us hear and understand all points of view. A place where community, not distance, come first.

As sung in RAGTIME THE MUSICAL:

Go out and tell our story.
Let it echo far and wide.
Make them hear you.
Make them hear you.

How justice was our battle and how justice was denied.
Make them hear you.
Make them hear you.

And say to those who blame us
For the way we chose to fight
That sometimes there are battles
That are more than black or white.

We look forward to the day when everyone’s stories will be heard and have hope that as we raise our voices together in non-violent protest, equality and justice will come. We stand by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s words “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

SOME LIKE IT HOT to Premiere in Chicago March 2021

Posted on: March 12th, 2020 by B.I. C. No Comments

Broadway In Chicago, The Shubert Organization and Neil Meron are thrilled to announce that SOME LIKE IT HOT, a new musical comedy, will have its pre-Broadway world premiere at the  Cadillac Palace Theatre with performances from March 2 – April 4, 2021.

SOME LIKE IT HOT is a brand-new Broadway musical comedy, featuring a book by Matthew Lopez (The Inheritance), music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).  The musical is based on the classic MGM Oscar-winning film SOME LIKE IT HOT, which has been named the “Funniest American Movie of All Time” by the American Film Institute.

Set in Chicago when Prohibition has everyone thirsty for a little excitement, SOME LIKE IT HOT is the rollicking story of two musicians forced to flee the Windy City after witnessing a mob hit. With gangsters hot on their heels, they’re on the run as the newest members of the swingingest big band ever to cross the country. Can they hide in plain sight without completely losing themselves? Or will the mob, the truth, and maybe even love itself finally catch up to them?

SOME LIKE IT HOT will be co-produced by Roy Furman, Robert Greenblatt and the Nederlander Organization. The cast and additional creative team members will be announced at a later date.

SOME LIKE IT HOT will be part of the next Broadway In Chicago season, on sale to the public April 8, 2020. Tickets are available now for groups of 10 or more by calling Broadway In Chicago Group Sales at (312) 977-1710 or emailing [email protected]. Individual tickets for SOME LIKE IT HOT will go on sale at a later date.
